Abstract

A mechanical device for anchoring hollow tube-like structures in the human body, such as blood vessels and ureters. It facilitates positioning needles or catheters in blood vessels and it prevents those from dropping out of the vessel or from “wandering off” in the vessel. The device can be used in every interventional medical situation for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The device is very easy to fix onto the vessel wall. Screwing is a fast technique saving operating time and requiring only basic microsurgical skills.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This is a Continuation Application of U.S. application Ser. No. 12/556,114 filed Sep. 9, 2009, which is a continuation of Ser. No. 10/554,947 filed Feb. 2, 2006, now abandoned, which is a National Stage Application of PCT/BE03/000120 filed Jul. 7, 2003, which claims priority from PCT/BE03/000074 filed Apr. 28, 2003. The entire disclosures of the prior applications are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • FIELD
  • The present invention relates to anchoring a SCREW-DEVICE onto a tube-like structure, for example a blood vessel, in such a way (1) that a needle or a catheter can be passed safely into the hollow structure and (2) that this needle or catheter can be positioned firmly in the vessel so that it cannot slip out or be displaced (i.e., be carried away by the fluid in the vessel).
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • In many interventional medical procedures we want to reach hollow structures like a blood vessel or a ureter. During these procedures we want to place a catheter or a needle into the hollow structure to have access to it, mostly for therapeutic reasons such as the administration of medication, the placing of a stent or a coil, dilatation and so on. Sometimes access to the aforementioned hollow structures is necessary for diagnostic purposes.
  • The firm and stable fixation of a catheter into the wall of a hollow structure is essential since the catheter should under no circumstances fall out of the vessel or wander off into the vessel. In the human body some hollow structure are embedded in surrounding tissue which enables the catheter to stay in place. This is the case, for example, with the blood vessels in a limb. It is completely different in the thorax, skull, or abdomen, where hollow structure are surrounded by less connective tissue and a catheter can easy slip out or be displaced. To prevent this, the catheter has to be fixated by suturing it to the wall of the vessel, but this is difficult and time consuming.
  • The present invention, the ASD, can easily be screwed onto the vessel-wall, where it gives a maximum stability and support for the catheter, which can then safely be inserted into the vessel.
  • Interventional fields include diagnostic procedures that involve the implantation of a catheter or needle; and therapeutic procedures that involve interventions (such as placing a catheter for medication) or that involve surgical operations, laparascopy, possibly in combination with endoscopic procedures.
  • SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • The invention makes it possible to anchor a hollow structure, like a blood vessel, easily and quickly. More specifically, the ASD allows the physician dealing with medical intervention to make a stable and safe connection with a hollow structure in such a way that a catheter can be firmly positioned without any need for time consuming suturing.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIGS. 1 a and 1 b illustrate two embodiments of the ASD;
  • FIG. 1 c illustrates the ASD inserted onto the wall;
  • FIG. 2 illustrates the ASD filled with thrombostatic or haemostatic material;
  • FIG. 3 a illustrates a lateral view of an ASD with a removable head;
  • FIG. 3 b illustrates a top view of the ASD of FIG. 3 a with a removable head;
  • FIG. 3 c illustrates an in situ view of the ASD of FIGS. 3 a and 3 b, with the removable head as positioned into the wall;
  • FIG. 3 d illustrates the ASD with removable head of FIGS. 3 a-3 c, showing a view of the way in which the removable head is attached to the body of the ASD.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The ASD 1 takes the form of a hollow screw, with an ending that is not—as in the regular screw—a point, but one full spiral winding (360 degrees). The end of the winding is sharp and round, i.e., it is non-cutting but it is capable of perforating the wall of the hollow tube-like structure in which it is screwed. The sharp, round point 10 is bent inwardly and downwardlly in an angle of 10 to 20 degrees (.alpha.) (see FIG. 1 a). Alternatively, the sharp, round, non-cutting point 100 may bend downwardly in an angle of 90 degrees (.alpha.) (see FIG. 1 b). In this case, the end resembles a cork-screw, but the end is not situated in the middle of the final winding but on the periphery.
  • The ASD 1 shown in FIG. 2 is the same as mentioned in FIGS. 1 a-1 c, but with the body of the screw filled with thrombostatic or haemostatic material 12 that functions as a sponge against leakage of the vessel after the catheter has been removed.
  • FIGS. 3 a-3 d illustrate an ASD 200 with a removable head. This device consists of two basic parts: first, the removable head 14 with applicator 16 (i.e., a long, thin shaft with a handle 18 used to drill the head into the vessel wall) and second, a hollow ASD 20 with a hollow screw of three windings, which remains in place (i.e., in the vessel wall).
  • The removable head 14 consists of two windings, and ends in the form of a corkscrew 22 (see FIGS. 3 a, 3 b). This is, again, a round, sharp, non-cutting point 24. The head forms one whole with the applicator. Once the head 14 is in place (i.e., in the middle of the vessel wall) (see FIG. 3 c), it is removed, together with the applicator 16, from the rest of the ASD that stays within the vessel wall.
  • The second part is the body of the ASD 20 is shown in FIG. 3 d. It consists of three hollow windings attached to the head by means of internal, anti-clockwise windings. Every winding is wider than the previous one, thus expanding the vessel wall. The opening in the wall is made by the head in a non-occlusive way, i. e. the receptor vessel need not be temporarily occluded.
  • Depending on the sort of hollow structure, like a blood-vessel, the diameter of ASD may vary from 1 millimeter to 2 centimeters, or even more.
  • The ASD is made of inox material, or titanium, or super-elastic materials such as nitinol, or synthetic materials, or even resorbable materials.
  • Depending on the diameter of the blood-vessel, the material may vary from 0.1 mm to any desirable thickness.
  • The elasticity of the ASD depends on the material used.
  • The ASD is screwed one turn of 360 degrees into the receptor wall. This ensures a stable fixation on the wall. A needle or a catheter is then inserted through the ASD into the wall, and is fixed onto the ASD so that it cannot slip out of the vessel or ‘wander off’ in to the vessel.
  • The screw device can be manufactured commercially and be employed to anastomose two vessels of different or identical sizes. It can be used in all domains of vascular surgery, heart surgery, and neurosurgery.
